I have the Aussie locker in my D30 which is basically the same thing. I love it, works great. If you are running stock axles with the dana 30 front and dana 35 rear, I would not install one in the rear as it causes more wear on the rear axle. If for for the front, go for it.

Jeff, have you had a chance to run your front Aussie in the snow? I was just wondering how it acts in slippery conditions. I know it doesn't snow much in your neck of the woods, but didn't know if you'd been up to Big Bear with that new locker yet.

i've been running a Lockrite in my D35 rear axle for the past 8 years and its been great.
I thought about putting one in the front axle but I've seen people twist axle shafts while rock crawling. Plus I heard it pulls alot on the road.
My lockrite in the rear does pull a bit, I could only imagine when its in the axle that steers.

Maybe I not reading what I read right. I thought that those lockers did not engaged unless you lose traction on one wheel. I thought they would be perfect for on and off road use on a daily driver?

I have the Lock Right in my front Dana 30. It is great off road in 4 wheel drive. In 2 wheel drive on pavement you can not tell it is even in there except for some clicking when turning. I have driven it in the snow on some steep hilly terrain at slow speeds and I did not have any issues with it then except that the steering is a bit harder but that is normal. It may be a bit different at higher speeds in the snow but I have not had to deal with that and it does not snow that much where I am. I would not put a locker in the back of a stock 35.

Well that sounds pretty good. But I think I'll just put in a D44 before I put in a front locker.
Ive had my lockrite in the D35 for around 8 years with 4.56 gears and 35's with no problems. Been on sand dunes, mud and even rock crawling with no issues. But to each their own.

In answer to your question, no I have not had the chance to use my Jeep in the snow since installing my Aussie Locker. It does have me a bit nervous for when the drive home involves iced over asphalt at the higher elevations.

If you have a lunchbox locker in a YJ with the vacuum disconnect for 4x4, you will not even get a clicking in the front axle during turns due to the axle actually being a two piece unit on the passanger side.

In the snow it will make it feel a little "twitchy" on the road in 4wd. Other wise the locker will be completely invisible in 2wd.

I ran the aussie in my xj for several years with no issues. I was really hard on it. It was a D30, stock axles and 31's. You should be safe up to 33's and a locked D30, plenty of folks run 35's locked on the D30 with chromo axles.

I also eventually istalled an aussie in the rear. I hated how it drove on the road. If it had been my DD, I would have removed the rear locker.
